    Unfortunately the beamdog client seems unable to obtain the 827.beam and 827.status files and I can't start the game. :(

    @mf2112 The new Client?

    yes sir, I couldn't preload without it. I have done the verify a few times, no change. I get exit code 3221225477. I guess I could try to uninstall and reinstall next.

    Could you clarify about what kind of message you are getting from the Beamdog Client and what step you are taking to make it happen? It seems like you were able to successfully preload, so is this something that happens when you click the 'Update' button? Or did you complete the update and something goes wrong when you click 'Play'?

    Here is the error from the beamdog client,


  • mf2112mf2112 Member, Moderator Posts: 1,919
    It looks like all the placeholder files were replaced around an hour ago, everything in the game folder looks normal and complete, just the 827.beam abnd 827.status files are missing.

  • AlexeiPepersAlexeiPepers Member Posts: 23
    The .beam and .status files aren't expected to be saved there so that's fine, so it does look like your game successfully downloaded. Could you double check that nothing is different if you run the .exe directly instead of through the client (If you click 'Options' and then 'Open Game Location' it will be Torment.exe) and give us a some information on what kind of system you're running on?

    @AlexeiPepers
    I split this to a new thread cause I screwed up @JuliusBorisov 's good thread. I ran torment.exe and I don't get the same Beamdog error but I do get the same crash dump.

    I have a Win7 system, nothing to write home about.

    At this point the crash dump dialog box appears and I click it and go back to the c: prompt.

    I copied the 00827 folder elsewhere, deleted it, then redownloaded the whole game but still have the same error and crash dump. I am definitely in Torment....

  • AlexeiPepersAlexeiPepers Member Posts: 23
    Thanks for splitting the thread! We've looked over your crash dump and it seems to be an issue with missing openGL, could you check that you have the latest drivers for your video card? If you don't have your card's latest drivers than please update to them and see if that fixes it.

    If that doesn't fix your issue then we'll have to bring in the support team, you can find the details here on how to report your issue to them: https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/64224/how-to-report-bugs-you-find-in-pst-ee

    Thank you very much for looking into it. Windows device manager says it has the latest available driver, but I am downloading and installing what AMD has now. It looks the same I think, but hopefully the reinstall will clear up whatever was missing.

    So I did something I have never done in 30 years of PC work......it turns out AMD released a new driver for my 2 year old video card literally yesterday on 4/10, and given the choice between Torment and No Torment you know what I chose to do.
    It works, game opens fine. Thank you very much. I am sorry to have made a fuss but was concerned about something affecting everyone at launch since everything else had apparently gone very smoothly with the preload.

    Lucky. I got dump.3.0.3.0.0002.dmp Any takers?

  • KennisKennis Member Posts: 122
    It appears that I have the most recent drivers as well.

  • Gate70Gate70 Member, Developer Posts: 3,770
    @Kennis this is on/after launching the game, right?

    If on PC, please attach a directx diagnostic report
    (Windows/R, type dxdiag, click ok, wait for the green progress bar to complete, save all information, and attach here)

    Thanks

    Thanks.
    It looks like a generic Windows 10 driver is installed for your graphics chipset. From looking at the Asus and Intel sites I can only see drivers for Windows 8.1 or earlier but you may wish to confirm with the auto-detect utility at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/

    You could try these things

    Look in your "documents/planescape torment - enhanced edition" folder for baldur.lua file.
    Open the file and search for backend. If present, change to 1. If not present, change to add a new line as below, save the file and try launching the game.
    SetPrivateProfileString('Graphics','Backend','1')

    If baldur.lua does not exist, download and unzip the attached file, then place it in the location mentioned above.

    Try an earlier version of Windows if available to you, e.g. via dual boot.

    So, I looked in that folder, and it is empty - I have a baldur.lua file from BGEE and BG2EE I 'could' place in there and try to run...just did that and it didn't work. Is that indicative of another problem?

  • KennisKennis Member Posts: 122
    ooo...just tried your lua file and it works. Thanks!
